  • Lumos Networks

  • Spirit Communications
WAYNESBORO, VA and COLUMBIA, SC — Lumos Networks and Spirit Communications announced that the two companies have been rebranded as SEGRA. In announcing Segra, CEO Timothy G. Biltz said, “This new brand marks the official launch of a single company with a mission and a culture that are dedicated to providing winning solutions for our customers. We are looking forward to the opportunities this gives us to better serve our customers, our communities and our employees.”

In April 2018, EQT Partners completed the purchase of a majority stake in Spirit Communications and announced it would combine the Spirit assets with Lumos. Since that time, the two companies have integrated operations, have expanded their fiber-optic network and product sets and have made further investments in existing and new markets across nine states in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. Notable new markets include Raleigh, Greensboro and Fayetteville, North Carolina.

RLEC Segmet to Retain Lumos Name
The company’s Rural Local Exchange Carrier (RLEC) segment will retain the Lumos Networks name and will be supported by a dedicated team of employees led by Diego Anderson, senior vice president and general manger, residential and small business. This segment will continue to focus on delivering product solutions to residential and small business customers within those regulated service areas.

“The management team and employees of the combined company have completed several integration projects to meet the strong demand we’re seeing for our products and services,” said Doug Gilstrap, Chairman of the Board for Segra. “As Segra, we look forward to meeting the needs of our customers and strengthening our company’s leadership position in service, reliability and product innovation.”

Jan Vesely, a Segra board member as well as Partner at EQT Partners and Investment Advisor to EQT Infrastructure, said, “The new brand represents many attributes that EQT seeks in its infrastructure investments and we look forward to supporting Segra as it expands its world-class fiber-optic network and its portfolio of products and services.”

Customers will begin to see the Segra logo on company vehicles, buildings, and other materials over the next few months. Customer service, rates and network coverage will not change as a result of this re-branding process. “While our name and look will change, our guiding principles of doing business — most importantly putting the customer first — will remain the same,” said Biltz.
